"Night is falling and your blockhead is freezing.

You haven't yet made shelter and your campfire has gone out.

All you have is a spade, some wood and a few sticks.

You have only minutes before exhaustion hits.

Do you create a bed, dig a cave or refuel your fire?

What will you do?

Explore, mine, craft and build in this giant and detailed sandbox game. Navigate huge simulated worlds thousands of blocks wide with a full temperature and climate system, seasons, an equator, and frozen poles. Explore complex cave systems and flowing water, and survive deserts and snowy mountain tops.

Play alone, or with a friend, with online two player multiplayer and voice chat over Game Center.

• Control your blockheads in a vast randomly generated world with oceans, mountains, forests, deserts and deep underground caves.

• Keep an eye on their needs - give them sleep, feed them, create clothing and shelter - and they'll be happier, quicker and more productive.

• Craft tools with the resources they find, and they'll be able to work even faster and find more resources.

• Upgrade workbenches and unlock more advanced items to craft.

• Discover precious stones and metals deep underground, or rare plants and animals on the surface.

• Craft a boat and navigate the oceans using the accurate night sky to guide you.

• Build a marble palace.

• Paint the walls.

• Ride a donkey!"
